GROW Competition Winners Announced

Our GROW initiative continues to bloom, and with over 500 entries planted in our competition pot at this year’s Ballarat Begonia Festival, the numbers were a delight to crunch.

But let’s not get carrot away with corny puns, lettuce instead congratulate our winning green thumbs. First prize, a $500 Formosa Gardens Nursery gift voucher, was awarded to Shelly from Ballarat.

We hope that Shelly’s blooming marvellous prize plants the seed for her to establish a wonderful garden and keeps her as busy as a bee.

While, second and third prizes, went to Cameron from Ballarat and Bron from Bacchus Marsh.

Both received our fantastic raised garden beds on display at the festival, full of vegetables, herbs and flowers. We hope they both reap what they sow and benefit from the garden in spades.
